Please Help the Hospital Gardens Bloom

The Meaford Hospital Volunteer Gardeners are hard at work creating an exciting new “healing space”.

Tucked in behind the hospital overlooking the ravine, the healing garden will be a private space for patients, their families, and our frontline workers to de-stress, and  ’heal’.

The project has its roots in a small garden planted several years ago to memorialize four beloved nurses who had all passed away that year. Two Gingko trees were later added  to honour the memories of two doctors.

Last year, a donation was made in memoriam with the request that it be used to create a more comprehensive healing space at the hospital. The crushed rock was laid, a bench and picnic table were provided and the volunteer gardeners were asked to weave the same magic they did last year in the hospital’s ‘Welcome Garden’ out front.

It is a natural fit for a bunch of ‘green thumbs’ who truly believe in the healing power of gardens and nature.

So, the planning is done, soon the trowels will be in the ground, and the work to enhance the grounds of Meaford General Hospital continues.

Your contribution can help make this happen.

Donations $20 and over will receive a tax receipt. Thank you.
